6:01 am
full sunshine. good morning in livermore. 32 degrees and you are holding steady at 30. north and east bay, take it easy. i will warm up nicely and 52 degrees. by 4:00 pl as you head home from work. a beautiful clear sky. you can't beat that. >> great temperatures there. >> hopefully the commute is okay where you are. a couple of spots where it's kind of thick. >> except for that one week between christmas and new year's, it slams down about this time. as you pass by l street, from g to l, things are slow. you get a breakthrough pittsburgh, but yesterday we saw slowing over the 242. concord as thick fog and there may be slowing as well over the highway 4 interchange. the benicia bridge has been
6:02 am
given a travel advisory. it will drift through the area, but it's smooth traffic showing a 19-minute drive. a toll plaza live look shows a light volume of traffic. 6:00 a.m. and sparsely populated. we will watch the metering lights after 6:30 this morning if things go as they are now. back to you. >> thanks, mike. new this morning, 1400 more u.s. marines are headed to the frontlines in afghanistan and that could double according to the wurm. robert gates is making the move because the taliban is expected to begin an offensive this spring. the first set of marines could end this month. president obama has ordered commanders to start pulling out of afghanistan starting in july. >> police are looking for more possible victims of the 60-year-old man accused of abusing a little girl in a daycare. police arrested campos and say
6:03 am
his family ran the daycare for more than 10 years. he was arrested on lewd and lascivious acts on a child and looking into other victims. a new sketch could help students find an attacker at stanford. a man attacked about 6:30 as i woman was walking near us drive and sarah street. the man came from behind and tried to grab her. students are now advised to walk in groups and stay on designated paths and sidewalks. we will follow the story and bring you new updates we might get. the man accused of raping jaycee dugard and keeping her captive for 18 years is expected in court. the judge and earns in the case are expected to question potential jurors. they are asking the judge for access to a psychiatric interview with phillip garrido. the judge sealed the tapes until
6:04 am
the psychologist issued a written report. he and his wife nancy are changed with kidnapping dugard. >> the party may be over at a nightclub accused of covering up violence on the dance floor. the mercury news reports staffers in san jose did not call police or an ambulance for a welcome choking on her own blood after being stomped on in the new year's eve party. it's the latest in a string of alleged cover ups at that club. the city attorney will now ask a judge to close the club in a hearing on january 24th. the club owners say that the changes are overblown. >> the hornets in the south bay. these day it's all the rage for sports teams to pitch a move. bob redell is live. depending on how you look at it, the south bay is a sports magnet or a bargaining chip. that's hard to say. good morning. we all know that the san
6:05 am
francisco 49ers and the oakland a's are possibly going to move down to the south bay. what complicates the moves is a lack of a venue. they cost lots of money and a franchise is a different story. there is a venue right behind me at the hp pavilion. you may not realize, but the city came to an understanding with the owners of the hp pavilion. if a franchise were to move, they would be open to having the team play here and share the space with the san jose sharks. the hockey team. yesterday the city councilman said the path is clear for an nba team to move to san jose and the sharks said we would welcome the opportunity to discuss an nba franchise moving here. the next question, will the oracle ceo will be able to get his hands on the new orleans hornets? he denied offering $450 million
6:06 am
for the team saying it was $350 million, but he was outbid by the nba. no secret he wants a franchise. he tried to buy the golden state warriors who play at the oracle arena. the warriors did play the hornets yesterday and beat them. experts think a move to san jose makes sense. there is few corporate sponsorshi sponsorships. that could change given the presence of the companies and san jose is part of a bigger tv market that would bring in more revenue. live in san jose, bob redell, today in the bay. >> interesting. thanks, bob. >> the courtship looks to have hit about a $7 million snag. that's how much the miami dolphins are ready to afr him to coach their team. the dolphins owner is in the bay area already. he will reportedly meet today.

6:08 am
internet over the christmas holidays. a few minutes ago, we learned of an unexpected jump in jobless claims. not all bad. we look at broader trends. this number is falling steadily. we hit the lowest first time jobless claims in two years. tomorrow we get the overall unemployment picture from the labor department. the number of jobs lost and here's hoping gained in the previous month with the unemployment rate come out at 5:30 tomorrow. they guessed really high that there were far more jobs created than experts think. we will know tomorrow morning. >> it could be a hit to your wallet. 200,000 californians see health insurance costs skyrocket. blue shield is looking to raise rates by more than 30%. if state regulateors approve, it would take effect on march 1st, the third rate increase since october. if the increase passes, hundreds

of thousands of policy holders will see the rates go up more than 50% in five months. >> that's a lot. time now is 6:09 and we want to take a look at the morning commute. >> take you out to the golden gate bridge. clouds around the deck itself, but santa rosa and novato with dense fog. advisories continue where we had reports of black ice and frozen fog. keep that in mind as you go through the north bay. here at the bay bridge toll plaza with an easy drive approaching. we do see the cash lanes and slowing as you approach. the volume starts to increase and no metering lights yet. out of the maze and nice. off the east shore freeway. a pleasant drive off the bridge near that area. they have a fog advisory and you
6:10 am
may get hit with thick fog through the north bay as well. north of the benicia or carquinas bridges. >> i want to check the forecast with 60s. it's cold this morning and will be nice later. >> yes. once we get rid of the fog, that will be the case at about 10:00 a.m. the fog is getting more and more severe in the north and the east bay this morning. you are down to a quarter mile visibility between concord and santa rosa. napa a quarter mile and fairfield with a quarter mile and concord. just take it easy. you really, really want to travel cautiously. that's the best advice i can give you. keep a safe cushion with the car ahead of you. that's good advice. things looking good. when it comes to the advisory, you deal with the fog all the way to the north in sacramento and the south towards bakersfield. the tule fog is creeping into the area. it's coming in and spreading
6:11 am
into the north bay and impacting the east bay. that will be the case as we head through the next hour. it's colder out there as well in some cities. livermore is 32 degrees. 30 in gilroy and santa rosa at 30. the possibility as mike pointed out of black ice on the overpasses and bridges in particular. that will be a factor. turn the defrosters on up there. later it will be beautiful once again. 60 in oakland. 60 for los gatos and 59 degrees in santa cruz. a warm day there. 17 looks good and temperatures in the 40s. cloud cover coming up from the south. as we head throughout rest of the week, not a lot in terms of change. overnight lows back into the 40s as we head into sunday. that will be the trend through wednesday. you can throw that snuggie in the corner then, but it's cold this morning. >> have to wear one out here. thanks so much. 6:11 and crews are wrapping up i

maybe an nba franchise. realistically, what can you do as a city leader. the city is cash-strapped. what kind of offers can you do to help? the budget is limited and the city fund is limited. we don't have the capacity and it is our building. we would need to work out an arrangement between the sharks and an nba team. we have to be part of that. we would facilitate the deal and we are not in a position to write a check. >> can you talk to any other teams outside of this? anything else we have been looking at? >> not currently. there have been other opportunities the shark his that they pursued. i think those will continue as we have a great facility there. the public teams don't do well in other cities and they would would like to do better.
